oops ! I did it again !

I bet you guys thought I was going to complain about the points issue again ? haha
Nah ... just messing with your brains ! ..
The again thing is me going into Home Sense and coming out with things in bags AGAIN ! ..
I found a smaller nautilus shell, like the BIG one I originally had .. it can be a great little planter for something to "spill" over ... maybe blue lobelia ! .. the cast iron snail is the best kind to have in your garden .. as opposed to the real deal snail.
This great big book .. believe me .. it is big .. something for me to snuggle up to tonight .. I can't help adding to my collection one more time .. it is just so relaxing reading a garden book with great pictures too .. talk about a de-stressing time to take out for yourself ! Thumbs UP !

Pretty soon you will be too busy to shop at Home Sense, you will be potting up the shell and doing all your spring chores.

I like the shell.


Zoe said...

Hi Gail .. this is such a long process with so much snow it is hard to believe we are ever going to have Spring !

Hi Zoe .. thanks ! looking forward to another shell to see : )

Boohoo, I just googled Home Sense and it's only in Canada :-( Next time you guys leave that door open for the cold wind to blow down here can you also send down Home Sense?

I went to Marshalls today to see if I could find something close to what you got but didn't find anything. My poor wallet is feeling so least until I can start to buy perennials next month.

It's not fair that you were out shopping while I'm slaving away in manure!! I added a little aroma to my new neighborhood. Nothing like greeting the new neighbors and showing them what it's going to be like living next to me. I like your shell and love your book. I'm so behind on books. I start work full time on Monday and won't be off till October:) But...there will be extra money for garden STUFF!!

Cabs said...

Like the shell planter! I have a huge dark blue ceramic one that I plant each year. The book sounds good too. I;ll have to take myself shopping shhhhh.... :-)

Each day of shopping brings you one day closer to gardening season. You are going to have some lovely items to add to the garden and a great book to read while sitting in the garden.

Hi Crafty .. still hard to believe Spring will come .. another cold morning in the dark here .. sigh !
But YES ! lots of garden goodies to dream with.

Hi cabs .. your shell sounds beautiful ! I love blue accents in the garden and that would be great to have (greedy aren't I ?) haha

Hi Anna .. I never mind that smell actually .. I know what good it does and boy, my soil could use a perk like that too ! haha

melanie .. what a low blow girl ! rubbing it in about being able to buy perennials next month .. BIG sigh .. I have been in touch with one of my favorite nurseries and sent my wish list .. Lisa can get almost evrything if I can't find it here in Kingston .. Yahooooooo !

You are the Wile E Coyote of Home Sense. One customer like you is all that store needs to turn a profit. Good thing all those items don't blow up in your face like Acme products :)

Brenda Kula said...

I for one love to snuggle up in bed with a good gardening book or new magazine. My husband's tv will be blaring loudly in the other room. I shut the door, retreat into my quiet inner space in my head...and dream.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Wisacer .. I just left you a "love of astilbe" note on my astilbe post .. nudge nudge wink wink
YES .. Home Sense and I have an understanding .. I will not leave that store EMPTY handed .. fun ends promptly as soon as hubby is home from golf trip ! haha

Brenda .. are you my twin sister ??? . I am so like that it is scary .. I'm glad other garden souls are out there, so I know I am not a little strange getting so much enjoyment out of that ! LOL
